§ 77. Mr. Sorensen
asked the Minister of Food if he is aware of complaints by retailers of wrapped bread that the benefit of an increased charge for this wrapped bread is not being equitably shared between the wholesaler and the retailer; and if he will take steps to ensure that the retailer shares the benefit.115W
§ Mr. Webb
The extra charge allowed on sales of wrapped bread was increased on 8th April to meet the higher cost of wrapping materials. It is my Department's responsibility to see that maximum retail prices are observed, but terms of sale between wholesalers and retailers are a matter for arrangement between themselves.
